How to Post a Good Online Dating Profile

If you are new to online dating or if you are a veteran in the adventures of online dating, the first thing you need to understand is that your dating site profile will either open or close doors in your romantic pursuits on cyberspace. An online dating profile is like a job resume; it showcases your hobbies, cultural background, religious beliefs and what your hopes are for the future.
A picture speaks a thousand words, and your profile photo is the first thing that draws potential candidates to you. Your online dating profile needs to have a recent and flattering photo of yourself. It is better to post a head shot for your profile picture than it is to post a body shot because the head shot forces someone to focus on and study your face and demeanor. Photos where you are wearing revealing clothing should not be considered for your online dating profile if you want to be taken seriously by potential candidates.
A good dating website profile should give a general idea of who you are and what you are looking for in a relationship. The information you provide should not be too revealing but it should not be too vague either. Answer as many of the pre-written questions on the profile as possible. Leaving the majority of profile questions blank makes you look like you couldn’t be bothered to put any effort in taking online dating seriously. Incomplete profiles also make a person look shady- like they have something to hide.
Your online dating profile should never be used as a tool for you to vent about your previous relationships that didn’t work out. Instead, an online dating profile should be used to portray what you are looking for in a mate and what he or she can expect if they choose to form a relationship with you. You should definitely list the issues that matter most to you; religion, desire to have or not have children, and willingness to relocate. Some people who have never tried online dating are skeptical about whether or not it works but online dating has connected many people who have formed long and short term relationships and friendships. Before these successful relationships were formed, these people “met” each other through their online dating profiles. If the profiles intrigued them and met with their satisfaction, further communication took place. If your online dating profile is a turn off then there is little chance for success. In order to be taken seriously on the dating website of your choice, you need to put some serious effort and thought into your online dating profile.
